Mini joints: This Colorado mountain shop's idea is a huge success

SILVERTHORNE — Walk into any dispensary in Colorado, and you are likely to find one-gram joints for sale. Along with jars of flower, edibles and concentrates, the pre-rolls have become a staple for pot shops across the state.

At $10-$15, pre-rolls certainly offer customers value and convenience, but as a smokable product — particularly for one or two people — it’s a lot to handle in one sitting.

“We thought it would be really great to have something portable that had just enough for you and a few friends,” Andrew Salini, chief operating officer at High Country Healing, said in a recent interview.

World's first marijuana gas pump opens in Colorado

Colorado-based Native Roots, a company that operates a number of medical marijuana facilities, officially opened ‘Gas and Grass,’ the first-ever establishment in the world that sells gas and medical marijuana, on November 07 in Colorado Springs, reported the New York Post.

Colorado state laws prohibit marijuana dispensaries from selling non-pot goods so, ‘Gas and Grass’ will have two different entrances—one for the dispensary and the other for the gas pump/convenience store.

The convenience store will sell lottery tickets, beverages, cigarettes, food items, and other products that can be usually bought in a c-store, according to Native Roots spokesperson Tia Mattson.

Strategies: Patent and Trademark Office not high on pot retailers and products

Signs are everywhere that Colorado’s blooming marijuana industry has gone from the thing few felt comfortable talking about to a mainstream business promising huge financial rewards.

Despite the entrepreneurial activity and the huge influx of cash, the Feds still officially regard marijuana production and sale as a crime.

One of the clearest examples lies in what’s going on at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. When the first medicinal marijuana shops began cropping up a decade or so ago, some of them, like any well-advised business, sought protection of their name under a federal trademark registration.

Joseph Wright, Cannabis King

Wright, 31, director of the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program

The state’s medical marijuana czar explains the hurdles still facing prescription pot as it goes on sale in Illinois for the first time. 

Only 3,300 patients have been approved for the program, which is not even close to what the state expected. Why so few? 

The largest projection I’ve seen for the number of patients who could be approved is several hundred thousand, so we are aware that there is a lot of room for growth. Lack of awareness and [doctors’ and patients’ unfamiliarity with the program] are reasonable explanations. In other states, there’s a natural progression in patient count. It starts out low, but as the program develops, it grows.

How pot and hippie beer explain the future of the American economy

Oregon's breweries and dispensaries offer lessons for how policymakers might nurture a small-business comeback.

LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. — At first, Jon Turner was just a software guy who really liked to brew beer. He cooked up two batches a week in his kitchen and kept his hard-drinking friends well supplied. He once brewed one pale ale over and over for a year to get it just right. In 2011, at a national conference of home brewers, he fell under the spell of a panel called “Going Pro.”

Dreaming of the Billion-Dollar High in California's Marijuana Green Rush

It is Friday night and I am standing on the doorstep of my San Francisco apartment looking down in disbelief at the neatly packaged, vacuum-sealed bag of green-grey marijuana buds in my hands which has just been delivered by a friendly and courteous driver, 16 minutes after it was ordered online. An eighth of an ounce (3.5g) of Purple Platinum cost $25 after a $20 promotional discount. The payment was cash only. The label lists the strain – apparently a classic of the state’s marijuana-growing region – along with the retail dispensary that supplied it. Everything is legal.

Hillary Clinton’s marijuana policy could lead to regulation of the industry

Former secretary of state wants Schedule II classification for marijuana

Hillary Clinton’s stance on marijuana legalization could cost the budding industry.

The former secretary of state and the front-runner in the Democratic presidential race told a town hall in South Carolina on Saturday that she supports reclassifying cannabis from a Schedule I to a Schedule II substance. Schedule I drugs have high potential for abuse and no accepted medical use, while a Schedule II classification means a drug has a high potential for abuse, but also an accepted medical use, like morphine and cocaine.

Canada’s cheapest pot producer sees sunshine as the secret to dominating legalization era

Canada's cheapest pot producer sees sunshine as the secret to dominating legalization era

 

In Leamington, Ontario Aphria Inc.'s marijuana greenhouse is probably a space as different as it could be from a drug dealer's dingy basement. But it is home to some of the lowest-priced commercial pot in the country. Canada's budding marijuana industry could blossom into a $5-billion market if Liberals make recreational pot legal It is already…
